If Malia Obama really is a Joey Bada$$ fan, America is going to have to face the sobering truth that, somewhere in the White House, a child is listening to Action Bronson rapping about appearing on the cover of Tiger Beat and breaking a whistle off in someone’s ass. I know it’s a hard thing to face, but it’s reality. The new Bada$$ album B4.DA.$$ comes out next week, and “Run Up On Ya,” one of its songs, has Joey teaming up with Bronson and with the R&B singer Elle Varner. It’s got a lot of sex-talk on it, and it will not save New York rap. You can listen to it below.
B4.DA.$$ is out 1/20 on Cinematic.
